Do you want to be part of a movement to inspire teen girls to find their own inner greatness? Ruby Taylor is leading the effort to get a book full of stories to young women to support their efforts to fulfill their greatest potential and find their swagger. Ruby says:
“Healthy confidence is a teenage girl’s shield against the struggles and challenges of life. When teenage girls have high self-confidence, they are able to triumph over many adversities life throws at them. With today’s challenges of gender bias, sexual exploitation, teen pregnancy, family problems, drug and alcohol abuse, school issues, sexual harassment, domestic abuse, social media drama, bullying, eating disorders, and image distortion, teenage girls need self-confidence and the constant reminders that they are worthy to reach their personal level of greatness.”
In her roles as aunt and high school counselor, Ruby saw the challenges girls face in achieving and maintaining their confidence. I have been personally inspired by her willingness to step up and DO something about the pain that girls feel as they strive to contribute their unique talents to the world and are met by demeaning media images and lack of support at home and school.
She says “In 2007, I was heartbroken by the pain, hurt, and lack of confidence my niece and my urban students had. I saw the lack of confidence and self-worth hindering their ability to overcome adversities to reach their true greatness. Wanting to help, I created a poem entitled “What Are You Worth?” In 2011, I expanded on the poem and created the movement Confidence to Greatness, (Buy and Give) a social enterprise that sell books and each book purchased provides me the resources to conduct free Confidence to Greatness workshops and donate books to urban public schools, churches, non-profit organizations, and conferences. “Buy and Give”. Every time a book is brought we are given the opportunity to give Confidence to Greatness workshops and donate Confidence to Greatness for Teenage Girls books to workshop participants for FREE.”
